|Ty is highly focused on the love of his life, Mrs. Fritz|
We got the biopsy back on Tiberius ' ("Ty" for short) and he has hermangia, cancer of the blood vessels. And while the doctors removed all of the cancerous tumor several weeks ago, we were told that Ty has a particularly aggressive form of cancer and that tumors can return at any time.
Ty is given 2 to 3 months to live in all likelihood. With some medicinal treatments his life could extend 6 to 12 months. So we are going to give that a try, but we are not going to do chemotherapy due to the side effects. We will bring Ty back to the vet on a monthly basis to monitor the cancer and to be able to make an informed decision as to when to put Ty down.
For now, Ty seems to be his happy old self. He has a good appetite again and he is raring to go on longer walks again, but the vet told us to start with short walks and let him build up to doing longer walks.

This morning, I went to the post office to mail some Fife and Drum Miniatures orders, and I took Ty along with me. He was very well behaved inside the post office and everyone wanted to pet him. Golden Retrievers have that effect on people - everybody loves a Golden and they soon attract a lot of attention when you bring them somewhere.
I don't normally bring Ty with me when I'm doing errands, but this time I thought, "why not?" I plan to take him with me more often as I do my errands in the coming months and spend as much time with him as possible.
